A Trio of Anniversaries

The Concert of the Century

Join us on December 16, when YO-YO MA, EMANUEL AX, and PAMELA FRANK — three artists who were mentored and championed by Isaac Stern — join Michael Stern and your Kansas City Symphony for an extraordinary all-Beethoven program including the composer’s Triple Concerto for piano, violin, cello and orchestra. This concert celebrates a trio of anniversaries: the 250th birthday of Beethoven, 100 years of Isaac Stern and 15 years of Michael Stern in Kansas City.
